We have a greater understanding of what it means to Prepare the Way for the Lord! We are so blest to have our Youth and Young Adult team as assisting in the various ways we need to prepare for Christmas.
Now remember, we can only see these beautiful lights when we have electricity from the city. Come Lord, Jesus!
We now grow our very own bananas!!!!! Sr. Inga is so happy because she loves a banana a day!
Sr. Marilyn works with teens who are preparing for Confirmation.
Sr. Inga organizes the program and prepares the catechists for each class. Our children come from the poorest families in the Cathedral parish. They come to Mass every Sunday and sit together with us.
You may have met Annette from seeing her on our blogs. She is a young woman who lives with us and shares in the Felician Mission. Annette works with all the young mothers who come to us every month, looking for assistance. About two weeks ago, we worked together to create a nourishing supplement to give them for their children and their babies. This concoction was shared with us by the sisters in Brazil who use it for those who live in the Amazon. It is made of seeds and nuts and corn meal.
We prepared packages for the mothers. Annette meets with them on the first Friday of of the month. On November 29, she gathered over 50 mothers. She began with a spiritual reflection, explaining the necessity of asking for God’s care and support. She also reflected on the meaning of preparing for the Lord’s coming in our lives. Annette truly embraces the core values of the Felician Sisters!

Let us give you a bit of a background before we share what happened on Tuesday, November 26. In August, our Sister Joellen from Lodi, NJ, was packing all her pre-school activities because she was moving to a new ministry. During her many years in child care work, she had created a wealth of hands-on activities for children. When she saw us, she asked if we would want to take any of these activities. Of course, after seeing what she had, we said “YES!” We placed these items in barrels to be sent to Haiti. Finally, after two months, we received those barrels. Yesterday, we were able to share some of those treasures from Sister Joellen with our kids.
Thank you, Sister Joellen, for being a part of the mission in Haiti!
